The Secret to Maximizing Your Child's Development

My dear sweet friend, Brenna Stull has a great post on her blog that I wanted to share with you. She is an amazing woman and is an expert in maximizing her time & energies. I have learned so much from her. She is the mother of 5 children & a pastors wife.

You need to check out her website; CoachMom & her blog; CoachMomBlog. You will be inspired. She has a wonderful book called, Coach Mom & she writes a newsletter full of tips for frazzled moms.

In her post she wrote:

Which of the following do you think is most important to child development?

A. school
B. playtime
C. the family dinner
D. story time

Catherine Snow, professor of education at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, involving 65 families over an eight year period. She found that dinnertime was of more value to child development than playtime, school, and story time. We will drive across town two times a day, five days a week, to put our children in the best school. But are we willing to take the time to plan a family dinner each night?

Go to her blog to read the rest of the story!

Have a fantastic day!!!
